This replica was produced by Gilbert Campbell's Filter Press some time after 1974 when the original copyright would have expired, and two years after the author's death.
The author's last name is misspelled as Barlett on the cover and title page. There is a single
illustration by R.E. Lawlor.
Landell Bartlett (1897-1972) was an author and editor who lived in Colorado. He was part of the science fiction fan community there into at least the 1950s.
The Vanguard Of Venus is the story of a geologist in New Mexico who is kidnapped into an underground world by invaders from Venus. He is eventually returned to the surface because the Venusians know he will be thought insane if he tells his story. Bartlett eventually wrote a sequel entitled Operation Venus which appeared in the March 1948 issue of The Gorgon, a short-lived fantasy and science fiction fanzine published in Denver, Colorado by editor Stanley Mullen.
